played by Keeley and Linus. Stay tuned, as tomorrow the spy is bringing you a spotlight on Keeley's new series Traitors.
I suspect that this is something that will eventually show up on PBS in the US. I'll likely miss it unless I see that it is on and record it on my DVR. "Hydrogen bomb" piques my interest.ReplyDelete
Tossing It Out
who would've guessed that a hydrogen bomb would drive you over here for a visit, Lee? :)Delete
Is it any good?ReplyDelete
how would I know, it hasn't started yet!Delete
It has good 'ingredients": the cold war period, Britain's testing of its first bomb. a russian jew inventor, MI5.ReplyDelete
And, the 'raisin' on top of it - Toby Stephens with his magnetic presence.
Definitely worth seeing the series!
hope Toby and Keeley have a secret fling in the series :)Delete
Good cast! I have long been a fan of Linus Roache.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen him in anything ever since he was a young boy.Delete
Jason will be all over anything having to do with the hydrogen bomb. It's going to have to go on the list.ReplyDelete
what's with da people today and the hydrogen bomb?Delete
Because something of that magnitude is fascinating, especially among the male species.Delete
